Insights of a Chicken

|Bio:||Passing a Truck Full of Chickens at Night on Highway Eighty|
by Jane Mead
What struck me at first was their panic.
Some were pulled by the wind from moving
to the ends of the stacked cages,
some had their heads blown through the bars –
and could not get them in again.
Some hung there like that -- dead –
their own feathers blowing, clotting
in their faces. Then
I saw the one that made me slow some –
I lingered there beside her for five miles.
She had pushed her head through the space
between the bars – to get a better view.
She had the look of a dog in the back
of a pickup, that eager look of a dog
who knows she’s being taken along.
She craned her neck.
She looked around, watched me, then
strained to see over the car – strained
to see what happened beyond.
That is the chicken I want to be.
I am going into my fourth year at NC State University as a junior, majoring in Animal Science and Spanish. I am very liberal and I have a lot of odd theories, which I like to bounce off of my friends and family on a regular basis. I am also writing a new novel, which I hope will eventually incorporate music, livejournal and aim conversations into the plotline. It's under the tag of Mental Affairs, check it out:)
I also write Molly Weasley and Rita Skeeter on hp_dungeons, a Harry Potter roleplay that's now in its 3rd year. Go take a look- these people are amazing writers and I'm honored to be working with them.
My journal has evolved to become mostly friends only, though I will post publicly every so often. Please comment to be added.

Since LiveJournal's asinine policies have forced some of my favorite communities into lockdom, may I announce to the world that I am over 18.
